Excellent post as always from GHF! APC have been trading for 35+ years and have built solid relationships with customers and suppliers going back many years, so with news of profitability returning and costs falling together with new partnerships and opportunities they certainly look attractive. I already hold APC and look forward to sharing the journey.

rinson - Agree. Their 15% shareholding in OEM could produce a nice windfall in the future. Wouldn’t that be nice ;-) Kind regards GHF

Evening folks, Firstly, congratulations to Richard Hodgson & his team in effecting a turnaround of the business. I’ve now had the opportunity to speak with the company following FY17 results & came away extremely impressed by the positivity expressed. It’s clear the company is now gaining momentum following an extensive 18 month restructuring period & results clarified the realignment of the cost base through a 19% reduction in operating overheads. I won’t regurgitate my earlier comments & background to an investment case on the company. If you’re interested, then please seek out post 680 on this investment thread & you will observe that APC delivered as speculated at the time. The results were well telegraphed via their Sept 2017 trading update so the importance - for me - was to determine where they envisage growth will come from. The Sept 2017 presentation (see post 706 & 707) provided a number of signposts to future growth. So, again I ask the question, where is the growth coming from? As mentioned in the results RNS, the focus is on 3 main growth drivers: -   * Growth through increased bookings & billings from existing & high growth tech - On speaking with the company I learned that they now have incentivised sales teams & are observing growth in orders from existing customer relationships, both their customers growing in the UK market & APC increasing their share of spend from customers. A double whammy ... if you like! * Growth through the signing of new complementary product lines – APC are already delivering on this having signed 5 tech partners since the summer. We only have to look at the recent Oregano partner deal with APC Time to observe that this compliments their existing relationship with Meinberg. This provides APC with improved opportunities to sell into their existing customer base, address new market opportunities and similar to the first growth strategy mentioned, allows APC to increase their share of customer spend. * Growth through targeted bolt on acquisitions - The company confirmed they are looking at small bolt on acquisitions that would allow them to increase both their product base (or supplier relationships) & present an opportunity to service new customer bases. Such small deals would also present them cross-selling opportunities & ability to remove costs. So increasing revenue & earnings enhancing at a stroke! These growth strategies appears sensible & achievable. Especially when we observe the changes the new management team have made to the likes of APC Lighting via the results statement. This business previously suffered from “boom & bust” trading conditions given their dependence on Morrisons. Now the team have established preferred supplier agreements with FM & Property Management companies allowing them to manage a pipeline of opportunities & grow the business by offering bespoke lighting solutions ... to an increasing customer base as they sign more supplier agreements. They make mention of one such transformational supplier agreement with APC Lighting in the results announcement, “...£500k revenue to date, with quoted work at over £2.5m, under a new preferred supplier agreement for a major facilities management group.” Also worth reiterating the growth in APC Time which observed billings +65% & bookings +75% last year. It’s clear that management have observed other market opportunities, such as the broadcast sector, that will augment the growth observed in the finance sector. I also believe that the Oregano partnership will be v positive for the business in the coming year as previously mentioned. In conclusion I came away v impressed with managements vision for the company. They have removed costs, provided business focus & we are now beginning to see momentum building. The proof of the pudding is of course in the eating...in other words their results. So lets await further developments/ news & H1 2018 results & judge the execution of their growth strategy accordingly. Personally I’m excited to see what Richard, Tony & the APC team can achieve in the months & years ahead. Disclosure I’ve been a buyer throughout 2017 & now have a modest holding. So please take my comments with the proverbial pinch of salt. Kind regards, GHF

Interesting post on LSE yesterday. Not sure if it has any merit though! Posts: 1,095 Off Topic Opinion: No Opinion Price: 6.625 Malcolm/CTTue 09:23I think there could be an overlooked gem in APC which could propel it well beyond 10p overnight - hxxps://openenergymarket.com I believe for the first time we see a valuation (£307K) on our 15% investment in OEM listed in the F16 Results because of an upturn in OEM's business. I am familiar with this company. Take a look at what they do and the image they portray and it appears a lot more professional than a company valued at £2m!!! They have a huge addressable market, very little competition and according to APC their business is growing. I guess it also helps that APC CEO sits on their board.

APC Time seems to be progressing very well… This December, following continued growth in its high-precision time and frequency synchronisation business, APC has relocated its APC Time division to a new central Lincoln base. hTTp://apcplc.com/news-posts/apc-time-opens-office-university-high-tech-campus/

Decks have been cleared and now in profit - https://www.investegate.co.uk/apc-tech-group-plc--apc-/rns/final-results-for-the-year-ended-31-august-2017/201712050700083615Y/ However "reporting a pre-tax profit of £166,000" Much of the development data as previously reported in the trading update - "In addition, the Group's ownership of 15% of the issued share capital of Open Energy Market Limited ("OEM") was valued to a fair value of £307,000, in accordance with fair value hierarchy level 3 under IFRS 13 'Fair Value Measurements', following an upturn in the OEM business. Earnings per share, on operating profit before exceptional costs, amortisation and share based payments improved from 0.3p to 0.4p. " Possibly (hopefully !!) at the beginning of a breakout -

Even if whether it was a 'buy' or a 'sell' mattered a bit, the fact it was so small at £1,500 would hardly change anything.

diku: Having looked at the trades a lot of trades at 5.75p Guess as GHF says the 250K was his buy the the others were probably as well - Possible interpretation could be that the MM's are working an iceberg sell at 5.5p or less - (Thoughts ?) If I am right and it is a major holder selling down could be a delayed mark in the next few days and/or a holdings rns. Agreed - management need to get on making company more profitable with increased sales improved margin and EBITDA/EBIT rather than worrying about the share price 64k QUESTION - Do members of this thread believe they can do it ? -

GHF...as a matter of interest how did you manage to get 5.75p?...wonder how much did the seller get?...did you put in a fill or kill order?..

My last buy for 30000 was quoted as a sell. Any idea why the MM's do that?

Yes GHF the prices displayed are misleading of late or has that always been the case.

Thought it worth flagging that the 250k @5.75p is a buy...although it may look like a sell via trade data. Investment colleague & myself have topped up further. Kind regards GHF

Couldn't agree more with your statement PJ & the sentiment expressed by playful. Focus should be on growing the business/ profitability & the share price will take care itself. I would rather they weren't otherwise distracted. APC is now profitable & the company released a fairly detailed presentation explaining the road-map for growth. I'm sure the company will update Investors when they've got something to say! Kind regards GHF
